A DUI is probably way more expensive that you might think. You’ve got court fines, license reinstatement fees, the cost of a lawyer and insurance increases, and that’s not all. In some states, you may be required to install an ignition interlock device on your vehicle depending on the factors involved in your DUI arrest and the local legal statutes.
In Minnesota, you can be ordered to install an ignition interlock device if your BAC was above 0.16, if you’ve had a previous DUI on your record, or if you meet one of these other conditions listed in the Minnesota Department of Public Safety’s handbook on Ignition Interlock Devices.
Cost Of An IID?
You might think that an IID is a one-time cost, but it’s not. You have to pay for installation, as well as a regular monitoring fee. To get a better understanding of how much it costs to have an ignition interlock device installed on your vehicle, we again turn to our friends at The Arizona DUI Team, who have sent us this handy infographic. Once you’re done checking it out, head over to the other infographic they sent us on Boating Under the Influence.
